Voters must demand ban on assault weapons

To the editor:

Press and politicians are wasting their time and ours trying to place the blame for the horrors of the Orlando slaughter on radical Islamists or the relentless NRA. We have no one to blame but ourselves, for electing and re-electing the feckless members of Congress who refuse to pass a ban on assault weapons.

We the People have the power to change that, and luckily there is an election coming up. Control of assault weapons should be a key issue. Anyone who equivocates should either be booted out of office or denied a seat in the House or Senate.

E.J. Johnson, Adams
